Computational biology of RNA processing group

About us

Research in our group focuses on the investigation of the signals involved in gene specification in genomic sequences (promoter elements, splice sites, translation initiation sites, …). We are interested both in the mechanism of their recognition and processing, and in their evolution. In addition, but related to this basic component of our research, our group is also involved in the development of software for gene prediction and annotation in genomic sequences. Some of our current projects are:

  • Evaluation of Gene Prediction Programmes
  • Gene Prediction software: geneid
  • Genome-Wide Search for Selenoproteins
  • Gene Prediction by Comparative Genomics
  • Splicing
  • Gene Structure Evolution
  • Phylogenetic Reconstruction
